The
Experience

The approach is rustic, wild and the term home-grown was coined here. The world could disappear and engaging hosts Rebecca and Alfonso wouldn’t bat an eyelid (nor go hungry) for months. Bounties of seasonal goodies appear as do home-farmed olive oils, Iberian pork and the honey of 200 beehives. The couple spotted their paradise and immediately moved down from Madrid; now these 19th-century farm cottages form a unique hamlet hotel, where culinary creations are made with love from the ground up. Breakfast in the flexible finca’s barn is a jumble of local jams and cheeses, and character permeates the new farm shop in the old bakery, with cobbled pathways, stone floors, wooden beams. Rebecca’s restaurant offers lunch and dinner, and Alfonso can ferry you out for a safari-styled picnic. Return to traditional bedrooms with slate floors, small windows, and amusing crannies that become cupboards. Enjoy splendid isolation and sights rare to Europe like golden eagles, lynx, wolves. Ride bikes or horses, explore Celtic castles, pop into Portugal – or view it from the garden’s glinting pool.

Reviews

What a superb location to get away from it all. A beautiful rustic Finca, 15 minutes up a dirt track from the main road, absolute peace and tranquillity. Alfonso is a charming and helpful host who together with his wife cooks the most lovely food and provides excellent advice on the local area. A cosy, romantic house in which to stay. Cash only accepted here, no choice for eating out unless you want to drive some distance, no kettle in your house and limited mobile/phone signal, but if none of that bothers you and you just want to get away from it all; this is the place. Fantastic!

Andrew, Bristol

Great hideaway once you get used to 6km dirt track from main road.Lovely job of converting this old Finca.Could do with tea/coffee in the rooms and breakfast although authentically Spanish could do with a little more variety e.g. yoghurt/eggs. Dinner good value and nice wine recommendations. Cash only is a little inconvenient. However overall very good hotel.

We had a wonderful week here in mid-September. It is an exceptionally well renovated old farming hamlet set in really lovely countryside. The accomodation is simple but perfect in its own way - comfortable, cosy, well cared for, crammed with interesting art. We enjoyed the pool, the alfresco lunches and the relaxation. Dinners were a highpoint of our stay, with locally sourced produce used to deliver excellent meals - all served in a charming dining room. Great hosts helped ensure that our stay was fantastic. Highly recommended!
